Yes, I know - it's weird.
QuoteLandscape architects generally agree on the following definition of "landscape," used by the annual European Landscape Convention, which draws landscape architects from across the globe: "an area, as perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors." Landscape is perceived by people, an idea of the mind that to some degree is up for interpretation. Land has character: a moral ethic, a capacity to be lacking in integrity or piety, kindness or civility. It is an interaction of geographical and human factors, an interplay of geography with cultural and sociohistorical values. It is complex, it is fraught. Notably, this definition is consistent with other, more political uses of the word—as in a nation's "moral landscape," or a community's "ideological landscape."The word "paradise" is frequently cited by landscape architects (it already appears three times in the first chapter of Thompson's book). Thompson explains this by noting that landscape architecture, given its preoccupations with aesthetics and pleasure, is linked to "ancient dreams of paradise."
